Police say their office in the grounds of Pilgrim Hospital will become an important community outpost after installing new IT equipment there.
New computer systems mean officers can use the hospital base without needing to return to Boston Police Station as frequently.
In addition, it is intended that the office will be staffed every Monday between 12noon and 3pm, providing a useful drop-in service for that side of town.
Sgt Fran Harrod said: “For officers who cover the villages to the north, such as Sibsey and Wrangle, returning to Boston Police Station for meal breaks, or to use the computer system, can be time consuming, especially when the traffic is heavy in Boston. It is important that we are as accessible as possible for the communities we serve and the police office at the hospital will really make a difference.”
Last Monday Chief Constable Neil Rhodes visited the office and met officers and staff as well as some of the new batch of nurses who have been recruited from overseas.
